Most DCHS and Wildlife Center services are by appointment only. If you found a lost animal, need to surrender a pet, found wildlife in need of help, or require another service, please call before coming to the shelter. Adoption visits are handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

2020 Madison Firefighters Calendar benefits Dane County Humane Society

Madison area firefighters are coming to the rescue of animals at Dane County Humane Society! Madison Firefighters annually produce a calendar with proceeds benefitting local non-profit organizations. The 2020 Madison Firefighters Calendar will benefit DCHS. The calendar will feature Madison area firefighters alongside their pets, rescue pets, and Dane County Humane Society alumni animals.

Calendars will be available online, at DCHS’s Main Shelter, DCHS’s Thrift Store, select Mounds Pet Food Warehouse locations, and at area businesses for $20. All funds raised will support DCHS and the over 9,000 animals which come into their care every year.

DCHS was the benefitting organization of the Madison Area Police and Fire Charity Ball hosted by Fire Fighters Local 311 and the Madison Professional Police Officers Association. The ball was held on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at Monona Terrace.
